Thanks for all the hard work and good effort.

She/they are aware of this problem .

I have , as a user of audio playback , found the problem to be more persistent , than sporadic .

If you come up with a fix , spread the word like Christmas .

Tracey is an engineer, and she's the one who mentioned to me that she's seen it but that they don't know the cause for it yet.

What would be most helpful is to report as much information as possible: browser type, flash version, URL of the show you're listening to, etc.

embedded Flash Player problems with 3 popular browsers

Flash Player problems began 2 months ago - less than 10 weeks ago. When I first discussed the new Audio tag and how it was working for me, this NEW trouble was maybe one week old. I've been streaming shows from Internet Archive on a daily basis for at least the past several months. It had been working perfectly.

my Adobe Flash Player version is 0,1,82,76 in all 3 of my browsers.

Regardless of which Audio item's vbr_mp3 setlist I am trying to stream from when using the "default" settings, my Flash Player always stops prematurely. At best, it streams perhaps as many as 3 tracks in a row. Then it stops. Most of the time, the audio stream will stop after playing just one single track. It doesn't matter which track is selected. It doesn't matter which show or Audio item is selected.

The only way to cure this problem is to switch over to the new Audio tag. My 2 browsers that support this tag are Firefox and Opera.

The default Audio tag has a nice design. I prefer this one. The share feature in the upper-right corner is handy. This old Audio tag performs much better. The tracks are switching faster with smoother buffering.

I often find that the new Audio tag sucks. Many times I have experienced Audio items whose setlist wouldn't play at all in my embedded Flash Player - won't even play one track! The control panel is missing just like EcceHomo is saying, above. The only thing that works is to toggle back to the old Audio tag. Then the old control panel appears, and the mp3 files will stream. But, the Flash Player "always" stops before the end of the setlist.

If not here, then where? The more publicly compiled information we have, the more a pattern might appear that is missed by just emailing at random.
